Outdoor Grilling

For safe outdoor cooking, remember to keep the following in mind:
  • Check grills before the first barbecue. Hoses and valves should be examined for cracks and leaks. Use a thin wire coat hanger to clean a clogged valve.
  • Install or place grills on level ground at least 20 feet away from a house or any other structure.
  • Make sure the area near the grill is free from combustible materials such as pine needles or leaves.
  • Never use a grill indoors or in any enclosed areas, including a garage, because dangerous gas can accumulate to unhealthy levels.
  • When lighting a natural gas grill, always keep the lid open.
  • Always follow the manufacturer's instructions that accompany the grill.
